Diva Lasik Refractive Center

DIVA Eye Institute has been the frontrunner in bringing the latest technology for the permanent removal of glasses. Ever since we started the LASIK surgery back in 1994, Dr. Dipan Desai has been a pioneer performing this surgery. We pride ourselves in being the only all-inclusive refractive center with all the modalities required to correct refractive errors. We offer LASIK, Topography-Guided LASIK, Bladeless Femto-LASIK as well as ReLEx SMILE. We offer the most experienced surgeons for all the above procedures.

LASIK & FEMTO LASIK

LASIK (Laser-Assisted-In-Situ-Keratomileusis) treats refractive errors by folding back the top layer of the eye and re-shaping tissue underneath. Surgeons will either use a mechanical instrument called a microkeratome, or a femtosecond laser to create the flap. After the flap is folded back, an excimer laser treats the eye for the individual refractive error. The laser only ablates the necessary tissue, leaving the surrounding tissue unaffected.

Lens procedures

Implantable contact lenses (ICL)

  • For patient who are not ideal candidate for LASIK or PRK or SMILE, Implantable contact lenses is
    the answer
  • The collamer ICL is an extra micro-thin lens, just like the contact lens which is placed inside
    the eye, rather than on the surface of the eye
  • It is specially shaped to correct near-sightedness, far-sightedness and astigmastism
  • The lens works in a similar way as glasses or contact lenses by changing the way light is
    focused on the retina
